Here's a good example of how Fox keeps their viewers misinformed. It started with Fox and Friends this morning and spread like wildfire across wingnut media.

"Fox and Friends on Monday morning aired a clip from an Obama campaign speech in Roanoke, Virginia, in which he says, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else did that."

The sound bite soon reverberated throughout conservative media outlets. Fox News later ran the headline, "Obama Insults Small Business Owners," and House Speaker John Boehner scoffed, "He said that because he has no idea what it takes to build or run a small business."
The quote also prompted talk show host Rush Limbaugh to declare that President Obama "hates this country."
Of course, Obama's supposedly insulting comment is somewhat different in context. The full text of his speech, rather than denigrate small business, challenged the idea that wealthy and successful individuals have never benefited from government programs:
I'm always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something - there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business - you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn't get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.
The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together."

WHACKED says: "Not the liberals here...they can quote Fox, and as koko mentioned, Drudge, worldnet, Briebart, etc. far more accurately than any conservative on these forums. That's just a fact."

Thanks for noticing that we know how to research and are accurate in our reporting.

We, as you, note that the right's posts are inaccurate and that the right-wing posters really seem unable to research much of anything.

WHACKED - Just wanted to say thanks again for noticing how accurate liberals are on the boards and how inaccurate the wingnuts are.

I know it took guts to admit that and earn the ire of your fellow wingnuts.

WHACKED - you aren't going to say "you're welcome" for me thanking you?

You people really are funny. You note and assert that liberals get things right, accurate, and do good research, and that republicans don't.

But why are you still a republican? Do you prefer to be misinformed, lied to, etc, by your misleaders?

Thanks for the bump, Brian.

I'm wondering why WHACKED is avoiding this thread after such high praise for liberals and recognition that we are accurate and well informed - especially compared to republicans.

Seen her around?

LOL....I'm not a registered republican...not yet:)
All those posts? Just for me? Awwww....I'm sorry I can't be here all day, as you are...I'm busier than before I retired. We can always use more volunteers...interested? That way you'd get to see what's happening out there in the real world.
I prefer not to be lied to, misinformed, etc. by our misleaders...and that would be Obama...that's why I'll be campaigning, daily, against him:)
I bet you're watching F and F right now, aren't you buddy? In your
Jammies with IWFSTYDHT across the butt:)
What's happening today? I'm waiting for yet another apology from Obummer, to the busindess men and women of America?
Any idea when that our ig hater in chief might come through with those?

I'm pretty sure that he offended many more Americans than just the small business owners with that gagfest.... some of the most hateful, disparaging words that he's ever spoken.
I hope he keeps "barracking", though. Every syllable insures that he won't be reelected in the fall.

As I said...thanks for your hard work. I'm glad you have the time to spare:) We just read what you post and know that the opposite is true.
Remember, you aren't able to do all that research on your own. Someone else makes it possible for that to happen:)

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 17, 2012 5:10:44 AM PDT
And as I said, thanks for noticing that we are far more accurate and know the facts far better than you and your cohorts.

That was priceless!

"Maroon" looks great on you. ;-)

Actually, scarlet and gray...
You'll have to do without me for awhile...I have work to do:)
Get that list together for me, will you?
I need all the activities that qualify as work in order to keep receiving Obamahandouts:)

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 17, 2012 5:31:58 AM PDT
but you wear "maroon" so well... ;-)

*the full text of his speech is just as repugnant; you can't accomplish anything without big brother nanny state doing the heavy lifting; typical liberal fascist collectivist bs

You don't tell Americans they can't do it on their own or their efforts innovations and initiave are worthless. So what is implied that if you are successful youd didn't work hard you aren't smart then you are what immoral? We all have great advantages. Some take initiave some do things different. Some take risks. Just more evidence of his Marxist point of view.

You need to quit while you are only mildly embarrassed. You have not been contributing well to the discussions. Most don't even think your comments are worth reading. Check out all the no votes and posts of yours that have gotten ousted from the discussion. Please stay relevant or go post somewhere else.

If you listen to the pundits of Fox News, you might think that Eagle Eye worked for that news joke. He maligns people who disagree with him and tries to undermine them at every turn.

Bulls Eye says: Not very bright are you? Look it up!

I really don't care. You need to stop watching Fox News and thinking it's real news. When people repeat the stuff they hear on Fox, it makes them look uneducated and I feel sorry for them.
